Scoot is officially a member of the IATA, after the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines Group successfully passed the global aviation association's Operational Safety Audit to be eligible for IATA membership.

The IATA membership is only open to airlines operating scheduled and non-scheduled air services.

As a fully-fledged IATA member, Scoot will now be able to drive priorities within the aviation industry and attend the organisation's member conferences that bring together representatives from leading international airlines.

Being an IATA member also gives Scoot access to IATA training in key areas such as aviation safety and security, operational efficiency and excellence, and sustainability, as well as programmes that help strengthen the capabilities of aviation professionals.

“This international recognition affirms our dedication to upholding safety for our passengers. Through the decade, we have continued to enhance our operational resilience and improve our customers’ experience," said Leslie Thng, CEO of Scoot. "Looking ahead, we hope to continue to pave the way in redefining and elevating value-travel in our industry.”

The airline, which recently marked its 10th year of operation, has been rapidly scaling back its international network as Asia continues to ease travel restrictions.
